Which Team Has the Most Star Power in the NHL?

Jarome Iginla has been the face of the Calgary Flames and one of the most valued performers in the NHL since he entered the league as a 19-year-old rookie in the 1996-97 season.

You could probably find Iginla's picture next to the word loyalty in any dictionary printed in Canada.

But his long run with the Flames is over.

Iginla was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the wee hours Thursday morning, days before the league's April 10 deadline (source: cbc.ca).

It seemed certain Iginla was headed to Boston, but Iginla's preference was Pittsburgh and Calgary general manager Jay Feaster went along with his wishes.

The Penguins were strong contenders for the Stanley Cup before the trade was made. Now they have joined the Chicago Blackhawks as the two most likely contenders for the crown when the postseason begins in four weeks.

Iginla adds to the Penguins' luster and star power.

Here's a look at 10 teams who also have designs on the cup and the star power they bring to the fight.
